Student Safety and Self-Defense

“John Graden was an excellent guest on my show. His books and information are valuable. I look forward to working with him again. — Dr. Mehmet Oz, The Dr Oz Show

The Safe Student Project is John Graden’s vision to educate teen- and college-age students about personal safety and self-defense. From cyber-bullying to sexual assault, his interactive workshops help students stay safe.

John Graden Teaches Student Safety and Self-Defense

With the implementation of the Clery Act and Title IX, schools have a greater responsibility to monitor and report sexual and criminal violence. Our program is designed to work with Title IX coordinators, staff, and students to reduce the threat of criminal violence and increase the safety of all.

What Students Learn in the Safe Student Seminar

The first line of defense that we teach is smart decision making. Temptations abound for a teenage free from parental supervision. 

Here are some of the topics that will be covered.

  • Rape Prevention & Defense
  • Anti-Abduction Training
  • Sexual Assault Prevention & Defense
  • Active Shooter Response
  • Threat Reduction
  • Active Shooter Defense Plan
  • Avoiding Danger on Campus
  • Stalking and Hazing
  • How to Stop a Bully without Violence
  • Cyber Bullying and Online Safety
  • Safety While Socializing

“Fantastic anti-bullying class today. John was professional, extremely informative, experienced and fun.”

Tiff McClanathan

Workshop Structure

This is NOT a powerpoint lecture. Our Teen and College Student Workshop is a four-hour interactive program. Students will learn everything from Active Shooter Response to Rape Prevention. They will be up and be moving most of the day.

Parents are encouraged to participate with their kids and enjoy a truly eye-opening, jaw-dropping experience for everyone in the class.

Participants will be active learning skills, techniques, tactics, and strategies in exciting scenario-based training exercises.

There is no experience or athletic requirements to participate and learn. All that is needed is the desire to learn how to be safer.
